Mucuna pruriens is known as Velvet Bean and is used in Ayurveda to treat nervous system disorders, depression, neurodegeneration, low sex drive and infertility. It contains bioactive tryptamines, including serotonin and 5-HTP, and is most known for containing a very powerful neurotransmitter precursor called L-dopa. L-dopa is an amino acid that converts into dopamine. Dopamine is depleted by stress, stimulants and alcohol.
